Women of easy virtue, drug addicts, petty criminals fight for space in Abuja ghettos
Any first time visitor to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, especially from other parts of Nigeria or other African countries, will be captivated by the spectacle of this only planned city in the country. It is a city that, like bees to nectar, attracts all manner of people. While some leave different parts of the country to find the proverbial green grasses in Abuja, others, especially those who are tired with the chaos and bustle of Lagos, for instance, come to Abuja to find peace. Its fantastically well laid roads and other infrastructure give a feeling that what many Nigerians see on television and foreign movies as what a planned city should look like can actually be found in Nigeria.
